    I also prefer the Model 3 front end as-is.

    But I don't think we'll get the S & X refresh that you mention. It would require a new frunk lid where the cut line is no longer at the front edge, otherwise it looks funny. That's a larger engineering change than just changing the front plastic as they did this time.

    This image seems to show that only the front plastic was changed in the Model S refresh.
    Headlights & frunk lid keep their shape.
